Summer is coming to an end.
I have sooo much to do still. I have been spending the past 10 days with my baby sister and her family who are in town from New Hampshire. I have so much to blog about but I haven't had time to sit at the computer long enough to load the photos and write the commentary.
School starts on Wednesday.
I am no longer a special ed school bus driver. I have 2 schools...1 elementary and then the middle school I work at....a total of 67 children. Totally different then the 6 kids I've had over the past 18 years!!! I have a route that happens to be one of the three worse routes in the district. It is in a pretty rough neighborhood. Oh, my bus is freaking twice the size as my last one! That really doesn't bother me....what bothers me is it's OLD, filthy, the seats are torn, there is writing ALL in the inside......when I told the head mechanic about this he said, Oh yeah, well it'll only get worse with those kids.............great!!!!!
I'll be laying down the rules before they exit the bus Wednesday morning!
I'm actually looking forward to this new journey! I feel like this is the route I am supposed to have because maybe one of those precious darlings needs me! Some of those kids parents are NEVER home and some live in dilapidated houses with 3 other families.
So I am off to go "try" to clean the nasty bus as best I can. Then I need to go to the school....I'm swapping classroom so moving all that furniture will be my workout for the day. Maybe I should do the school first 'cause the bus is gonna make me feel gross!
